    I've been looking around for a fast estate for a while (since i had to sell my Supra twin turbo to get something more practical), and I've narrowed it dow to; A6 2.7t, A6 4.2, or S6 4.2 (all about year 2000).

    could anyone help with info regarding the various pros and cons of each car?

    I'd say that the 2.7T would give an easy 290bhp (can run over 320bhp with a bit more than a remap) and its a good bit lighter (important when the engine is slung so far forward of the front axle) and more economical (about 6mpg better allround) than the V8 but doesn't sound as good (and needs revving more). But the S6 is the only one with uprated brakes, suspension and interior etc. that gives it more much more of a responsive sports feel to drive than the other two which are more fast comfortable cruisers.

    .... and speaking of that, is it just the s6 v8 that has the aluminium wings, or does the a6 as well?

    The S6 and also the 4.2 A6 both have Alu front wings and bonnet, they also have larger front and back arches like the RS6 and a wider track. The turbos can be expensive on the 2.7 V6's with higher miles.. Although so can Auto boxes on S6's. The S6 comes with Recaro's while the 2.7 will just have normal seats, no carbon fibre etc etc.. The standard spec list on a S6 is fantastic.

    Many thanks, I got the wheels from a Local place in Northern Ireland. They do suit it and update it a bit too. Gives it that S8 look.. although the C6 RS6 wheels look the ticket, they are 20's

    it's all well and good you lot saying get an S6, it's finding one that's the problem. i've been scouring the classifieds for about a month and only really come close to 1 good un.

    I think you lot should sell and stop being so selfish ;)

    been down that same road....don't dismiss the saloons as they've got a fair bit of space (especially compared to the Supra). Any pics of the Supra?

    Yeah, I wouldn't worry about an avant either. I had an A4 avant before the S6 saloon and I can honestly say that the S6 is just as good, it has a huge boot and with the seats down can fit loads. I even have 2 glass doors (full size) in the car with the boot shut. The fella in the door store couldn't believe that it took them.. Loads of rear leg room too..

    Mine might be for sale, I can't decide.. PM for more details

    depends what you're going to use it for, we have a savage dog to contend with, so avant is far more suitable, but like you say, big boots on saloons...but imo i prefer the look of the avant, just my preference ;)
